Please note that we will not make any refund to you until we have received the relevant Products from you and confirmed that they have not been damaged, for details please see our Returns page.

If you want to cancel the Contract, you must do so by notifying us of your decision during the cancellation period.
Alternatively, if your product is faulty or not as described and a period of more than 30 days has elapsed, then you are entitled to request a replacement or a repair. If your Products cannot be repaired or replaced by us then you are entitled to request a refund within six months from the date that you received the Product. Products returned in this way should have their original tags attached, and we reserve the right to reject refund requests which relate to goods which have been damaged by customers while being worn.

We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these Terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that we could have foreseen because the loss or damage was an obvious consequence of our failure to comply with these Terms or our negligence or if they were contemplated by you and us at the time we entered into the Contract. We are not responsible for any loss or damage that we could not have foreseen.
We are not liable for business loss. We shall have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity. We also expressly exclude any liability for any loss or damage which may be incurred by you as a result of your breach of these Terms.
All of your statutory rights are unaffected. We do not in any way exclude or limit our liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence; or fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; or any other liability which may not be limited or excluded under applicable law.

Our total aggregate liability in respect of any and all claims that you may bring against us in connection with Contracts and/or any use by you of our site or Products shall be no more than either (a) twice the value of any Products that you ordered from our site in the twelve months preceding the first event which gave rise to your right to claim damages from us, or (b) £1,000, whichever is greater.
As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau. Nothing in these Terms will affect these legal rights.
Where these Terms refer to ‘personal information’ it is referring to personal data about you (or other living people) from which you could be identified. When you supply any personal data to us we have legal obligations towards you in the way we use that data. We must collect the data fairly and explain to you how we will use it.

You may not use and/or change any of the intellectual property rights which feature on our site, nor may you copy or reproduce for drawings, photographs names, texts, logos, colour combinations, etc without our prior written and explicit consent.
Transfer of these Terms. We may transfer our rights and obligations under a Contract to another organisation, but this will not affect your rights or our obligations under these Terms.
Third party rights. This Contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
Severability. Each of the paragraphs of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
Governing law and jurisdiction. These Terms are governed by English law. As a consumer, you have the right to start legal proceedings in the country in which you are resident in.

We will hold your personal data on our systems only for as long as required to provide you with the services you have requested or to perform the purpose for which that data was collected.
Where you sign up to receive e-mail marketing from us we will retain your e-mail address on file should you ever ‘opt-out’ of receiving e-mails from us. We will retain your e-mail address in this way in order to ensure that we continue to honour and respect that opt-out request.
In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data: see ‘Your Rights’ below for further information. In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this data indefinitely without further notice to you.
ALEXACHUNG takes the protection of your information very seriously. We use encryption (SSL) to protect your personal data when appropriate, and all the information provided to us is stored on secure servers once we receive it.
ALEXACHUNG may store your personal data on secure servers either on our premises or in secure third party data centres.

These service providers may work for us or for one of our suppliers and may be engaged in, among other things, the fulfilment of your order, the processing of your payment details and the provision of support services. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. Where we transfer your data to a service provider that is outside of the EEA we seek to ensure that appropriate safeguards are in place to make sure that your personal data is held securely and that your rights as a data subject are upheld. If you would like more information about how the mechanism via which your personal data is transferred, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
All payments for products and services are provided through our trusted third party payment service providers Braintree and Swipezoom. Please see their terms and conditions for further information on the way they treat your payment details.

6. Your Rights
As a data subject you have a number of rights in relation to your personal data. Below, we have described the various rights that you have, as well as how you can exercise them.
6.1. Right of Access
You may, at any time, request access to the personal data that we hold which relates to you (you may have heard of this right being described as a "subject access request"). Please note that this right entitles you to receive a copy of the personal data that we hold about you in order to enable you to check that it is correct and to ensure that we are processing that personal data lawfully. It is not a right that allows you to request personal data about other people, or a right to request specific documents from us that do not relate to your personal data.
You can exercise this right at any time by writing to us using the contact details provided and telling us that you are making a subject access request. You do not have to fill in a specific form to make this kind of request.
6.2. Your Right to Rectification and Erasure
You may, at any time, request that we correct personal data that we hold about you which you believe is incorrect or inaccurate. You may also ask us to erase personal data if you do not believe that we need to continue retaining it (you may have heard of this right described as the “right to be forgotten”).
Please note that we may ask you to verify any new data that you provide to us and may take our own steps to check that the new data you have supplied us with is right. Further, we are not always obliged to erase personal data when asked to do so; if for any reason we believe that we have a good legal reason to continue processing personal data that you ask us to erase we will tell you what that reason is at the time we respond to your request.
You can exercise this right at any time by writing to us using the contact details set out here and telling us that you are making a request to have your personal data rectified or erased and on what basis you are making that request. If you want us to replace inaccurate data with new data, you should tell us what that new data is. You do not have to fill in a specific form to make this kind of request.
6.3. Your Right to Restrict Processing
ALEXA CHUNG may process your data on the basis of a legitimate interest in the following ways:
• to optimise website content
• to track products and services that are popular
• to ensure you receive relevant commercial communications
You may also ask us to stop processing your personal data (a) if you dispute the accuracy of that personal data and want us verify that data's accuracy; (b) where it has been established that our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where we no longer need to process your personal data (and would otherwise dispose of it) but you wish for us to continue storing it in order to enable you to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.
Please note that if for any reason we believe that we have a good legal reason to continue processing personal data that you ask us to stop processing, we will tell you what that reason is, either at the time we first respond to your request or after we have had the opportunity to consider and investigate it.
You can exercise this right at any time by writing to us using the contact details provided and telling us that you are making a request to have us stop processing the relevant aspect of your personal data and describing which of the above conditions you believe is relevant to that request. You do not have to fill in a specific form to make this kind of request.
6.4. Your Right to Portability
Where you wish to transfer certain personal data that we hold about you, which is processed by automated means, to a third party you may write to us and ask us to provide it to you in a commonly used machine-readable format.
Because of the kind of work that we do and the systems that we use, we do not envisage this right being particularly relevant to the majority of individuals with whom we interact. However, if you wish to transfer your data from us to a third party we are happy to consider such requests.
6.5. Your Right to stop receiving communications
Where we send you e-mail marketing communications (or other regulated electronic messages) you have the right to opt-out at any time. You can do this by using the ‘unsubscribe’ link that appears in the footer of each communication (or the equivalent mechanism in those communications).
Alternatively, if for any reason you cannot use those links, or if you would prefer to contact us directly – you can unsubscribe by writing to us at email@example.com and telling us which communications you would like us to stop sending you.
6.6. Your Right to object to automated decision making and profiling
You have the right to be informed about the existence of any automated decision making and profiling of your personal data, and where appropriate, be provided with meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as the significance and the envisaged consequences of such processing that affects you.
6.7. Exercising your rights
When you write to us making a request to exercise your rights we are entitled to ask you to prove that you are who you say you are. We may ask you to provide copies of relevant ID documents to help us to verify your identity.
It will help us to process your request if you clearly state which right you wish to exercise and, where relevant, why it is that you are exercising it. The clearer and more specific you can be, the faster and more efficiently we can deal with your request. If you do not provide us with sufficient information then we may delay actioning your request until you have provided us with additional information (and where this is the case we will tell you).
